You should lighten up a little. This is boating and it''s suppose to be fun. I had a good time just watching it on the internet and thought it was amazing to be able to track what they where doing.

All you guys that showed up, congratulations! There's no better reward than knowing you showed up, tried and had a good time doing it.

Nice to see an actual 'race' with all different size and types of boats not going around in a circle!

3. I was on the phone with Charlie McCarthy throughout the day with updates and got a message right as they crossed the line and broke the record.
4. You cant cheat agaist a clock
5. Why would you ever go by post times on OSO for anything
6. Charlie and Billy had a clock on them the whole race and they beat the record by 90 seconds
7. The only other boat that finished was the Fountain CC
8. What JC posted was correct as I talked to both Joes right after the race.
9. The Outerlimits SV43 IS the new record holder for the round Long Island race. Again congrats to the Joe and Joe for running an awesome race.
10. Billy will have the official times and a write up coming out very soon.
11. Justin, when is Pat coming to pick his new car up cause you loose!

Third....I was on the boat at the finish line and saw the checker being thrown. Time was compared to the official start time that was noted at the start of the race and YES...they officially broke the existing record for any boat cat or vee Around Long Island.

Congrats to the Outerlimits crew Joe and Joe and to the Fountain crew, who broke the outboard record that stood before today.

Thanks to all for the support both on the site here and those who actually showed up and raced.
thanks for the clarification. congrats on a great event!!!

Here is the actual e-mail from the past holder of the record, Stu Hayim.

Guy, please print and hand this to Joe and Joe should I not be able to personally congratulate you, I will use e-mail


On a warm August Sunday,(I believe 8-6-89) 22 years ago and after 3 of my own failed attempts, another "Joe" (Imprescia) and Alex and I succeeded on breaking Fred Kiekhaefer's 1968 record around L I.

I never imagined we would be fortunate enough to lose the record to 2 GREAT guys, so on behalf of all 3 of us, CONGRATULATIONS on a huge victory and a job WELL done! You are now the proud owner of my friend Don Aronow's record
Stuart Hayim 9-25-11

PS, Stu drove like a crazy man and was able to meet the winning boat and congratulate these racers who broke his record. Real racers showing respect to other real racers.

The last two years, the attrition rate has stayed the same 2/3rds of the fleet fails to finish. This is and always has been a tough race.
